'Marlborough Sounds #1' - Original Artwork by Melissa-Jane Skehan.

I am an artist based in Havelock and live surrounded by the beauty of the Marlborough Sounds, where the steep hills rise out of the turquoise blue Sea and wear heavy cloaks of ancient native forests on their shoulders. Everyday my eyes feast on the Tree Ferns, Kowhai and Beech Trees, as friendly Fantails flit around playfully, Kereru swoop heavily, while Bellbirds enchant with their songs and Tui keep me spellbound with their perfection and beauty. It simply feels like being in 'Heaven on Earth', and not only does it fill my soul, but it is my greatest inspiration to many of my Artworks. I love the contours of where the land meets sea, the shades of colour and beautiful sky.

This Artwork: 'Marlborough Sounds #1'

This is an original artwork using mixed media with several layers of acrylic paints on wooden board, gold leaf and a thick resin poured top layer, which gives the finish a unique liquid glass quality.

An abstract painting of the Marlborough Sounds in Blacks and Whites. I use a lot of dots, spots, dashes and mark-making in the process, purely intuitive in what feels right at the time of creating the painting. I have added a small goldleaf House to represent us, me, you, and our families settled in amongst this special place. Lastly, I have poured a thick, wet coat of resin over the top, which took 24 hrs to cure and gives the painting another element of beauty.

200 mm diameter Round Wooden Cradle, with a 35 mm Deep White Edges

I will send via NZ post Courier, with Tracking, with plenty of protection, bubble wrap and cardboard.

Thanks for looking, Melissa-Jane Skehan (Aotearoa Design).
